Living in the Moment
Probably one of the toughest things to do, not to be thinking three steps ahead, all the time.
I’ve been thinking about this lately because of my latest heroine, Maeve. I really love this woman. She’s suffered a terrible loss and has a memory gap that promises to hurt her even more once the truth comes out.
As Braden recovers, he learns she does this every night. In the difficult, warring territories of Five Bridges (the Flame Series), she sets out in her Jeep and rescues people left for dead in the no-man’s-land called the Graveyard.
As Braden gets to know this worthy woman, he realizes she rarely lives in the moment. She can’t settle her mind down, so he makes it his mission to help her. We love him for it.
At the same time, it’s funny to watch her not quite ‘in the moment’ moments. He can only laugh, then bring her around to the point at hand.
Both Maeve and Braden have been fun to write because of her character flaw.
Do you find it easy to live in the moment? I go back and forth. Being in my garden helps anchor me, especially when I’ve been writing or collecting photos or arranging the next giveaway. My garden helps me stop, think, look, and take in some amazing beauty.

And now, I thought I’d share a few photos that felt like serenity to me. (Photos from Pixabay…)
